The American Dream Starts @ Your Library TOOLKIT!
Great new toolkit http://www.americandreamtoolkit.org/
is now available and sponsored by the ALA and the Dollar General Literacy Foundation. The toolkit offers tools, resources, models and examples with a
focus on services to immigrants to the USA.
"For generations, the public library has been the cornerstone of the American dream. The library collects the heritage of the American past and shapes the promise of the future. The library also helps immigrants hold on to their native words and customs so that they can tell their stories, preserve their culture, and share their wisdom across generations"
Congratulations to all who contributed!
The toolkit was done in conjunction with ALA President Loriene Roy's Platform component: The Circle of Literacy - which includes reaching out to immigrants in the USA and around the world, indigenous youth, and the incarcerated.
